It's worth the short drive/shuttle from the cruise ship. Good eats, drinks, a beach/lagoon with water slide and a top notch museum on the history of Belize. Of course if you're spending more time in Belize see the actual Mayan ruins and spend some time in the Cayes!

Stopped here for lunch while traveling. Great view from the restaurant, affordable prices. Food was average, but the atmosphere made up for it.

As we were going from cruise ship to port, guy on tender boat told us he could set us up on tour to go to beach. Instead tour bus takes us to a man made pond. Plus it's going to cost us an extra $10 to swim. We were only planning on being there an hour and a half so... More

I went here for lunch with three friends. It was a long way out of town to just go for lunch but my friend had heard that the food was good here and it was. Service was quick and efficient and friendly. Would try another restaurant in town next time I visit. Thank you.

Long drive and not enough beach chairs. We met some fun people from Alabama that were off another cruise ship and that made it more pleasant. The music was way too loud for us older guests aka geezers. We would make another choice next time.

There wasn't much to see here but a few artifacts, pictures, and a bit of art. The house was nice to check-out though.

Took a chance on this place as we were getting of a cruise and figured that we'd have better luck negotiating direct then booking through the cruise line. After a 20 minute drive from the boat through the poorer side of the city we got there and from the looks not anything eyecatching but as you approach the ticket counter... More

A place that has all-in-one. Can see the Old Belize museum, eat at the restaurant, and or enjoy the lovely man-made beach. We had great time!
